Illusions of self-consciousness

Confirmed speakers:
Adrian Alsmith, Robert Briscoe, Antje Gentsch, Thor Grünbaum, Matthew Longo and Frederique de Vignemont.

The workshop will comprise two sessions, one dedicated to the sense of ownership and one dedicated to the sense of agency. Each will be opened by an empirical researcher followed by two speakers with philosophical views on the session's subject matter. The overall aims of the workshop are to explore issues involved in (a) determining the nature of the experiences of agency and ownership, and (b) finding appropriate measures of purported illusory forms of such experiences.

All are welcome, but space is limited, so participation is by registration only. Register with Adrian Alsmith by emailing this address: Please use the subject line ‘ISC workshop registration’.
